With a new sequel to the film Halloween just around the corner, a full 40 years after the original, the Geeks will journey back to the 80s, when some of the greatest movie franchises first rose from the roiling oceans of the blockbuster era, and continue to cast lumbering shadows on the movie landscape of today, some 20, even 30 years later.

What made these giants of cinema first stand out? What has endured and has kept them alive (for good or ill) in the present cinematic environment? And how have the sequels, set decades later hold up the ideals and unique elements of the films that first spawned them?
